Editor-in-Chief — Helena Munson.

As the first weeks of school are passing into the first 
months and most of us find that this is a place for work, 
we must realize that time is valuable as such. As 
Dr. Harker has told us, we have paid for the time that 
we spend here and it is up to us to get all we can from it. 
A high standard has been set before us in the classroom 
and by some means, even tho it may necessitate rising 
early in the mornings, we are forcing ourselves to measure 
up to this standard. However, the broadest college life 
does not consist in making good grades alone. Nor does 
it consist of just a leisurely good time. The ideal college 
woman is she who does her classroom work well, enters 
into college activities and is ready for the jolly good time 
when it comes. 

In order to reach this ideal, we must learn to value 
time. Concentration is the greatest of all virtues in study- 
ing. If we can study in spite of surroundings, we need 
not miss our class party or have to waken others with a 
clanging alarm clock. On the other hand, we need to 
learn to make the most of the time spent in having a 
good time. I have seen girls who thought they were hav- 
ing a good time because they were making a noise. If these 
girls had directed the same amount of energy in some 
purposeful way, for instance in a lively basketball game, 

Page Three

we should not have to have so many student government 
rules, we would have a livelier college, and those girls 
would find more real pleasure and at the same time would 
be in fact "making good." 

We desire to make an explanation for an oversight in 
editing the last issue of the paper. The president of the 
Athletic Association, in her article showed in a very en- 
thusiastic way how the girls might make the most of their 
Mondays. It was her thought that, since so much money 
is spent for "eats," some should go for open air sports as 
well. Because the Peacock Inn is a favorite place where 
the girls go for such things, she mentioned it instead of 
making a general statement. It was not her intention to 
advise the girls not to go to this one place. Because the 
editorial staff so well understood the spirit in which it was 
written, they failed to see the business man's point of 
view. We did not intend to discriminate in any way and 
the Greetings urges the girls to patronize the Peacock Inn 
because of their courteous treatment and as one of its ad- 


Yes, daughter, that's the Lake Matanzas section you're 
looking at now. Where and what was it? Well, I'll 
start in at the beginning. It was a lake about fifty miles 
from Jacksonville to which the upper classmen were al- 
lowed to go on a camping trip. Long before the event 
came off, that was all you could hear about in the halls 
or at the table. Every place you went you heard "Ma- 
tanzas," until the poor people who couldn't go had to 
hold their ears. 

Do you see that grocery bill on that page? That was 
the result of much thot and planning. You think forty- 
two loaves of bread a lot? Well, I wonder what you 
would have said to four dozen loaves when there were 
five less people? I should say we did have good eats. 

Page Pour. 

Wbt College Greeting* [My 

Nothing ever tasted quite as good as that beefsteak smoth- 
ered in onions or those carmelized sweet potatoes and 
fried chicken Sunday noon. But the peeling and slicing 
the onions is quite a different matter. Only one can of 
tomato soup for twenty-nine people! Well, mistakes 
will happen, but that was supposed to be for tomato 
welsh rarebit. 

This is a picture that was taken just before the train 
pulled out. Why is that girl talking so earnestly to the 
brakeman? Because the train was nearly ready to leave 
and a sack with something inside that looked like a jug 
which might have contained gasoline was still reposing 
beside of the station. Was it put on? No, as we pulled 
out everyone's eyes were fastened on that as if by men- 
tal power they might be able to bring it with them, for 
we were wondering how we could cook for twenty-nine. 

That? Oh, that's the station at Lake Matanzas. All 
those trunks and suit-cases? Why, you know that it 
might have been cold and we all had to take plenty to 
keep us warm. Yes, it was all piled into that one wagon. 
Of course it took some figuring to do it, but after the man 
was shown once it was all that was necessary. 

The next picture was taken along the road going to 
Lake Matanzas. On the edge of the picture is pasted what 
is known as a Matanzas sandburr, a special variety, with 
extra long stickers. They account for all the queer posi- 
tions shown in the picture. 

This is the Oak Lodge cottage. No doubt it doesn't 
look as if it could hold twenty-nine people, but it did for 
everything but sleeping. The other cottage is the Doug- 
las cottage, where nine people stayed who didn't mind 
being kept awake at nights. 

Yes, isn't the lake pretty, with the big trees along the 
side and the boats filled with girls out on the water? But 
something that was even prettier was the moonlight on 
the lake at night, just as the moon came above the tops 
of the trees.

This next picture is rather indistinct because it was 
taken around the big campfire in the evening, as the pop- 
corn was being passed. Such jolly, good times as we had 
singing, talking and telling stories. 

The next is a picture of several girls just ready to go 
off for a long walk. Oh yes, we were far enough ad- 
vanced in the idea of freedom of womanhood so that 
we wore bloomers. But it was more because the boats 
leaked so that our skirts were always wet around the bot- 
tom than any idea of a declaration of independence that 
we wore them. 

This picture was taken just as dinner was put on 
the table Sunday. But how we ever waited to have a 
picture taken after we saw that big platter of chicken is 
more than I can see. My, but didn't it taste good. Noth- 
ing quite like a long row and a walk to make things taste 
like "the good eats we have at home." 

This is a picture of Miss Anderson sitting by her fav- 
orite tree, looking out on the lake. Here is another pic- 
ture of her with the wind blowing her hair, which usually 
looked as if the wind never had touched it. 

These are some of the pictures taken while four of 
the bravest were trying the water of Lake Matanzas to 
see if it was wet. From the squeals and gasps that were 
heard, I guess it was not only wet, but a little chilly also. 
They were able to keep themselves warm by trying to 
keep their feet off the "Itchy" bottom. 

Oh, that's a picture of a jungle that was supposed to 
contain pecan trees somewhere within its depths. If it 
did, we are not able to say where, because all the pecans 
we might have found would not have repaid us for going 
any further into that jungle. 

We had fish Monday noon for dinner, and such quan- 

Platterful after platterful was brought on, which 

emed to disappear as if by magic. Was it caught by 

the girl everyone up so early in the morning? 

Page six 

Qftje College Greeting* 

I'm afraid that poor little fish would have been lost in 
such a multitude. 

No one really felt as if it were nearly time to leave 
until everyone started to pack and clean the cottages. 
Others were hunting for their summer wraps for which 
there had been so little use. This is a boatful going out 
for a last row. Do you see their long faces? It did 
seem rather a doleful matter when you think that it was 
the last time many of us would ever be there. 

!t was a much quieter company that got on the train 
than had gotten off, but that didn't last long. The car 
was soon ringing to the /rood old I. W. C. songs. What 
wouldn't I give now to hear, "U rah rah, our dear I. W. 
C." su>n^' the way it was that ni^ht! 

Winifred Burmeister, MS. 


Mary H. — "I want to put on my middy, but there isn't 
any place to put it on." 

Irene C— "I think bloomers are awful, dirty white 
stockings are worse, but Feril's hat is superlative." 

Helen D. — "Anybody might think by looking at my 
mosquito bites that I am developing muscle." 

Ruth P. — "I have lost the dishrag. If I. could see it I 
would know where I put it." 

B. W.- — "What kind of nationality are these burrs?" 

R. W.— "Southern Europe — -Spanish needles," 

Some new words that were coined at Lake Matanzas 
are: "Wuzzy," meaning fudge, and "ishy," meaning the 
bottom of the lake. 

Ruth Patton was "wrong side out under the boat." 

Margaret C. (out in the boat listening to the echoes) 
—"Oh, listen to our shadows." 

It was said that there were oceans of water in the bot- 
tom of one boat. 

Page Seven 


Zf)t College Greeting* 

Winifred B. — "The coffee tasted undone/ ' 

Helen D. — "Here, take my camera/' 
L.H.— "Where shall I put it? " 
H. D. — "In the Greetings." 

Margaret C. — "The only Latin words I know are 'Wie 

Ruth P. — "I wish my feet were not so ungainly." 

F. H. and M. H. (coming in from lake in a boat which 

they had paddled canoe fashion.) 

F. H. — "We have named our canoe The C. S.' " 

M. H. — " 'S. C — Christian Science canoe, because 

you think you have one and you ain't." 

By reason of there being two Miss Andersons and two 
Mary Louises in the party they were spoken of as Miss 
Anderson collectively, and Mary Louise collectively, or 
the Mary Louisae. 

We wonder what prejudice Ruth Want has against 
Ethel Glaspie that would warrant her in throwing her 
wash water in Ethel's hat? 

R. P. — "Say, Miss Anderson." 

Miss J. Anderson looks up inquiringly. 

Ruth — "Oh, Miss Anderson — collectively." 

Miss Anderson— "Well, what is it, Ruth?" 

Ruth — "Oh, well, I started to speak to you and then 

thot it would be more polite to include Miss Anderson, and 

— well — 

Miss M. A. — "But what did you want? " 

Ruth — "Oh, I'm so pressed now I don't remember 

what I was going to say." 

R. P. to Miss Jo Anderson — "When I know where one 
Miss Anderson is, it's always the other one I want."

Page Nine 

H\)t College (greeting* 

Irene — "I fear I came perilously near to breaking 
something when I knocked over that last suit case. Hope 
it wasn't anything valuable." 

M. L. P. — ''Well, I suppose it was mine, and 1 suppose 
that that jelly glass suffered. I always get all banged up 
up here." 

Feril — "Remember how her suit case fell off last 
year? " 

Audrey (from inside the house) — "Yes, and how we 
rode the wagon and tried to hold them all on? " 

M. L. P. — "It looked as if it had been held on." 

(Irene appears in the doorway with the various eata- 
bles, which she passes to each of the company. Audrey 
and Jo come out and sit on Helen and Barbara's bed. For 
a few minutes comparative quiet reigned. Then) : 

Winifred — "Oh, these awful curlers! I can't put my 
head in a comfortable position at all." 

(Groans of assent all over the porch.) 

Feril — "Don't you wish your hair were naturally 
curly, Miss Winnie? " 

Helen (crossly) — "Oh, go to sleep." 

Feril — "Don't be cross, Helen." 

Irene — "Jo, you and Audrey had better bring out 
your mattress and join the crowd." 

Audrey — "Let's do. I'm afraid we'll miss something 
if we don't." 

Jo — "Well, don't anybody say a word till we get 
back." (Exit Jo and Audrey.) 

Helen — "Nobody's going to talk. Everyone's going 
to sleep." 

(Enter Jo and Audrey, with their mattresses). 

Winifred — "Oh, dear, will I have to move over? " 

The M. L's — "Well, don't come over here." 

Feril — "And don't get near this bed." 

Jo — "Oh, shut up, everybody, and help us."

M. L. W. — "Well, don't shake out your sheets on us. 
If you've got so much sand, pass it around to others. We 
don't want a sand bath." 

(Irene gives a long sigh and a groan.) — 

Helen — "I do wish you'd get settled sometime and 
go to sleep." 

M. L. P. — "I didn't know that our main object in 
coming to Matanzas was to sleep — we can do that at 

Feril — "I should say so." 

Audrey — "Let's sing some 'Sleep, Kentucky Babe.' " 

(Feril, Audrey, Jo and Barbara sing. At close of 
song, Helen remarks, sarcastically) ; 

"What a nightmare! You might at least have mercy 
on 'Ship Ahoy' even if you haven't any on us." 

Audrey — "Oh, get over it. Wake up." 

M. L. W. — "Cheer up — and see what's coming next." 

Feril starts singing, "There is a tavern in the town." 
All but Helen and Irene join in. 

Irene — "Oh, I'm so thirsty. Won't somebody get 
me a drink. Barbara, your're a Sophomore — get up, 
please, and bring us a whole bucket of water." 

(Barbara arises, with a sigh, and exits into house.) 

M. L. W. (whispers)— "Hope they forget I'm one, 

(Everybody quiets down after Barbara has given all 
a drink.) 

Feril— "Well, goodnight, all." 

Chorus — "Goodnight." 

Winifred — "I'm not a bit sleepy, tho." 

M. L. P. — "I never am — at night — if there is anything 
going on." 

(Feril starts singing a German song, after which Au- 
drey is inspired to give another.) 

Helen (very much annoyed) — "Have you any idea 
what time it is getting to be? " 

Page Eleven 

My Cf)e College Greeting* 

Chorus — "About twelve — or maybe one." 

Helen — "It's nearly three. 1 know I'll never get to 
sleep, for it takes me two hours to compose myself." 

(Gales of laughter and various puns of word "com- 
pose" proposed.) 

Audrey— "Now, Helen, if you don't like our company, 
you can go up to Oak Lodge and crawl in with somebody." 

M. L. W. — "This is no place for a nervous woman." 

M. L. P. — "Oh, let's all of us go up to Oak Lodge 
and serenade them." 

Helen — "Well go, if you want to — and let us sensible 
people go to sleep." 

M. L. P. — "Now, Helen, you might as well get over it 
and stop showing off that beautiful disposition of yours. 
We're here for fun, and we only have two days and two 
nights, so let's make the most of it." 

Feril — "That's what I say." 

Helen — "Well, if I were some people I'd go jump in 
the lake, or something." 

Winifred — "Oh, get over it, all of you, and let's not 
fuss. Tomorrow — or I guess it's today, to be exact — is 
The Day of Peace." 

M.L. W. — "Sure peaceful here!" 

Barbara — "Oh, let's do go to sleep." 

Audrey — "Where have you been this last half hour? " 

Barbara — "Trying to sleep, but it's impossible." 

(Irene sighs and groans again.) 

Feril — "Poor child — does it want anything, bless its 

Irene (expressively) — "Oh, no.' 

Helen (cuttingly) — "Oh, no — just let everybody en- 
joy themselves. We'll suffer in silence from now on." 

(Laughter again.) 

Feril — "Goodnight, Helen, goodnight all — be com- 
posed, fair Helen." 

Helen — "Of course you want the last word!"

There is, in a small section of my country, a long 
stretch of rolling- prairie land that is locally known as 
'The Hills." I had always experienced a keen desire to 
watch from their vantage point the sunrise. Truly they 
were wonderful at any hour of the day, but somehow I 
fancied that at the dawn in the glorious autumn time they 
would be possessed of even greater splendor. 

Upon reaching the summit of the larger hill of the 
range, I was impressed with the feeling of an intruder, 
who had been admitted into that strange gray country by 
mistake, and that even the slightest sound would greatly 
interrupt the mysterious silence. There seemed but one 
assurance that the sun ever lived in that vast gray land — 
the fragrance of wild crabapples which came floating up 
from the misty valley below filling the air with a spicy 
tang. The faint gray outline of the horizon deepened; 
the perceptible brightening announced that dawn was 
rapidly approaching. ''The Hills" took on a purplish 
tinge, the eastern sky was streaked with irregular bands 
of crimson and purple. A slight breeze stirred the tall 
aftermath of prairie grasses about me and playfully chased 
the mists down the hillsides, revealing the beauties of the 
maples in their autumn garments of red and gold. The 
sun was partially in view, not dazzling to the eye as yet, 
but glorious to look upon. The mists, in seeming fear 
of so mighty a power, scurried away out of sight; new- 
beauties and old landmarks were disclosed on the slopes 
and distant landscape, for the sun had risen on 'The 
Hills." Lavina Jones, '18. 

There have been picnics galore this month. Many a 
"table" has decided to enjoy the freshness of the morn- 
ing air. The Faculty have been noted for the kinds of 
fires they build.

Monday, Sept. 14, 5 a. m. 

Well, this surely is lovely weather for starting to 
school. First rain we've had for three months, and then 
to think it had to come just in time to spoil my new hat. 
It just matches my feelings, but that is small consolaion 
these days, when everything is contrasts. 

7 :00 a. m. — That is an interesting looking girl across 
the aisle from me. I wonder if she could be going to 
Jacksonville, too. But then, if she is, she will probably 
turn out to be an old girl, who would think me fresh for 
speaking to her. 

8:30 a. m. — I didn't have to make first advances to 
her, after all, for when she had finished her magazine 
story, she looked around, and seeming to spot me as a new 
college girl, began to be friendly right away. She must 
be a senior, she's so dignified and seems to know so much. 

11:30 a. m. — And now we are actually coming into 
Jacksonville. Irene (that's my new friend) says that is 
the school for the blind that we can see over the tree 
tops, and that it is quite close to the Woman's College, 
only she says we call it I. W. C. I'm so excited. 

1 2 :00 m — I wish I were back home. I know people 
there,too. Here everybody seems to know everybody 
else, but I dont know anyone. It was awfully nice of the 
Y. W. C. A. girls to meet us at the train, though. I al- 
most fell off the steps right into the arms of one, and she 
brought me here, introduced me to the dean, and showed 
me up to my room. Its an awfully bare, queer looking 
place. No curtains, no rocking chairs, and just the bare 
mattress on the bed. I wish my roommate would come 
so we could get fixed up. Theres a bell. I wonder what 
its for. 

4:00 p. m. — Well, I will say this, they give us good 
things to eat here. After v/e got up from lunch I thought 
I would look around a little. The Y. W. C. A. girls had 

Page Fourteen 

jjy Zi)t College Greeting* 

an information bureau downstairs in the front hall, so I 
went down there and asked if we were allowed to go to 
church on Sundays. I thought the girl at the desk looked 
at me rather funny, but she said, "Yes, certainly. Any 
church you want to." I didn't see any harm in asking for 
1 have heard that in some schools they have church right 
in the same building. 

9:00 p. m. — My roommate has come! What a lame 
sentence for such a wonderful fact. 

Tuesday, 9:00 a. m. 

I thought sure the school must be on fire this morning, 
for the awfullest bells kept ringing. 1 jumped out of bed 
and landed in the middle of the floor, while Pauline lay 
there laughing at me. She didn't start to dress until five 
minutes before seven. 

4:00 p. m. — I've registered and of all of the com- 
plicated things! Every faculty member I came up against 
wanted me to take everything but what I wanted to, and 
1 usually couldn't take them because there were conflicts. 
I still have one, and I'm sure I don't know' what to do. 

Wednesday, 1 1 :00 a. m. 

Our first chapel is over. Dr. Harker, the president, 
gave a very nice talk, that made me feel as if I might 
amount to something sometime, after all. And I have 
signed up for two classes, French and mathematics, so 
far. Such a time as I had finding those class rooms. 
Of course they had to be at opposite ends of the building. 
One of the old girls piloted me to the math, room after I 
had been wandering around on the basement corridor. 
Pm beginning to get straightened out now, though. 

Thursday, 3 :00 p. m. 

I have another roommate. Pauline said she wanted 
a girl with more get-up to her; that I was too good. I 
certainly was never accused of that before. Seems queer 
I had to come to college to find it out. My roommate 
now is Ruth Bartlett, another new girl. We have been 
having lots of fun fixing up our room, and have it almost 

Page Fifteen 

Qflfje College (greeting* 

finished now. Oh, and I've discovered that the girl I 
came with, the first day, is only a sophomore. 


I got along fine in French this morning because I had 
a cold. During chapel we were invited to the Y. W. C. A. 
party for the new girls, tomorrow night. 

Sunday evening. 

I had a lovely time at the party last night. The girls 
all looked so pretty and I found out who lots of them were 
that I didn't know before. Went to church this morning, 
and this afternoon to the first Y. W. C. A. service. The 
president and several of the girls gave such nice talks, but 
I'm not sure I want to join. You probably have to be 
awfully serious. I wrote home to mother this afternoon 
that I'm just dying for her to come and see me. It seems 
ages since I left home. 

Tuesday night. 

Yesterday was our holiday and we were as busy doing 
nothing special that I didn't have time to write in my 
diary. Today I have had eight hours of laboratory and 
my head aches so that L can't do any thing else. I wish 
mother would come. 


We are having the most exciting time. The upper 
class girls, that is, the juniors and seniors, are giving a 
camping trip next week and they have room for three 
sophomores. So the three girls who have the most votes 
as "the prettiest, the wittiest, and the one best loved" 
will get to go. The sophomores have been parading 
around all morning in white dresses and red ties, soliciting 
votes. At lunch today they had tables all to themselves, 
and kept singing the craziest songs. It was awfully jolly, 
though. Then toward the last, when they began to sing 
something else, there was a commotion, and several girls 
stood up. I didn't know what it was for, but everyone 
else was doing it, so I did, too. Then someone told me 

Page Sixteen 

Uy W&t College (greeting;* 

that it was the college song, and we always stand to sing 

This evening, at dinner, three sophomores came in 
late, dressed as the prettiest, the wittiest, and the best 
loved. I'm going to vote for the one who was dressed up 
in the clown suit, for she seems to be the wittiest one here. 
I heard one girl say that it was a pity they didn't know how 
to spell Mantanzas, when they put it on their banner. 

I can hardly wait for the college sing tomorrow night, 
when we will know who gets to go. 

One thing I've noticed, too. The girls who have been 
jolliest today are some of the leaders in Y. W. I guess 
I will join. 

I wrote to mother this afternoon that she needn't be 
in a hurry about coming to see me, after all, but 1 wish 
she would send be a big box of eats. 

Oct. 10 — The girls who went to Matanzas last Satur- 
day came back Monday and they've been talking nothing 
but Matanzas ever since. I haven't heard yet of anything 
really exciting that happened up there, but they surely 
had a good time. I believe I will try to be a popular 
Sophomore next year, and maybe I will get to go, tqo,

One of the most interesting books in the library right 
now is Roland G. Usher's Pan-Germanism, which was 
published in February, 1912, almost two years ago. Pro- 
fessor Usher has so thorough an understanding of the 
world movements of the past, so comprehensive a view 
of every nation's movements and intentions, past and 
present, that he is able, with unerring judgment, to assort 
and adjust, with the result that he presents to the fasci- 
nated gaze of the reader a panorama of the world, mov- 
ing directly to the present crisis — and beyond. Where,

we wonder, does he get his knowledge of the fundamental 
facts ? 

There is an article in the October Atlantic Monthly on 
'The Main Cause of the War," which he sent from Eu- 
rope six days before Europe declared war. 

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

In the past month we have had some splendid meet- 
ings. The trip through the "Ghetto" gave a splendid in- 
sight into the work to be done in our Mission Schools. The 
special music has been excellent and we appreciate the 
way the new girls respond. 

Saturday night, Oct. 1 8, the Y. W. C. A. carnival was 
given. It was a real gala occasion. Everyone came to 
dinner costumed and ready for some fun. Every type 
was represented, from the German wiener man down to 
the little boy in overalls. The first entertainment was a 
vaudeville show. "The Arcadian Tragedy" made a 
good beginning. "The Old Maids of Lee" were very 
clever and handsome, too. "The Sleeping Beauty," 
given by the Academy, was effective and the costumes 
worn by the ladies were very beautiful. "The Strong 
Man." made a hit by the skill evinced in climbing furni- 
ture. The "Die Company" was the specialty of the even- 
ing. Such wonderful speaking, singing and playing could 
be found in Germany alone and the carnival surely 
brought us this one pleasure at least. The friends who 
came to meet Mr. Alfalfa Hayseed when he called were 
good imitators. The amateur performance ranked well 
with the professionals. Mary and her Little Lamb sang 
some beautiful ballads. The Wiener Family have a splen- 
did way of carrying on their business, bringing them suc- 
cess however the wheel of fortune may turn. An unu- 
sual amount of laughter was caused by the Crying Baby 
and the touching way in which the "Mocking Bird" was 
rendered by the Humaphone. During the intermission,

tickets were sold for a drawing at the country store. Very 
valuable premiums were received, such as red pepper, 
chocolates, cinnamon sticks and all sorts of other good 
edibles donated by the merchants of Jacksonville. About 
nine o'clock the circus goers went to see the pike. The 
wonderful fortune teller, shooting gallery and crispette 
boy drew the people irresistibly. "Dr. Jekyl and Mr. 
Hyde" proved very fascinating, in spite of the blood- 
curdling sounds issuing from the door. 'The Ride for 
Life" and the Midgets attracted great throngs. The more 
intellectual ones visited the Psychological Experts and 
learned the latest views on that subject. The Tango 
Ladies were very beautifully gowned and walked about 
with much grace. The lemonade, hamburger and stick 
candy were refreshing and caused the guests to part with 
their money readily. The Y. W. C. A. highly appreciates 
the support given and feels that a splendid year is be- 
fore it. 

The service Sunday, Oct. 19, on "Our Missions," 
with its notes from Geneva, was well worth while. We 
surely see the aim of the Association more clearly, that 
is, bringing about the brotherhood of man. The system- 
atic giving pledges were taken after the talk, when over 
$120 were pledged, nearly doubling last year's amount. 
Sixty dollars of this goes toward the support of a secre- 
tary in China and twenty dollars pays the scholarship of 
a Japanese girl in a school in Aoyama, a district of To- 
kyo, Japan. Letters are received at intervals from Fumi, 
our own little Japanese schoolgirl. 

Another line of work which the Association has been 
the means of bringing about is the Bible classes held in 
the Sunday schools. "Student Standards" is the subject 
of the interesting little book which the classes are using 
as a text, a subject which is of vital interest to every ear- 
nest college student. Mrs. R. A. Gates and Miss Hull have 
the classes at Grace and Centenary churches respectively. 
At each church a fine sized class has been organized.

On Nov. 1 Miss Olmsted, the city visiting nurse, talked 
to the Association of the practical service which can be 
and is being done here in Jacksonville. She told us of 
the Morgan County Tubercular Clinic, her own work as 
visiting nurse, and the free open air school which is to be 
established. It is hoped that some of our own girls can 
be of service in connection with this work. On Novem- 
ber 2 a benefit concert is to be given by some of our fac- 
ulty and others in behalf of the city work. 

The Y. W. C. A. has been coming before the public 
eye in many ways recently. Thursday evening, Oct. 22, 
the college girls were invited to the Society Halls and the 
Academy girls to the reception room, where tea and wa- 
fers were served by the leaders of the Mission study 
classes for the following winter. The classes and leaders 
are: 'The Young Working Girl," Miss Robinson; "Wom- 
en of Five Nations," Ola Wendel; "Immigrant Forces,'' 
Alice Tombaugh; "Country Life," Barbara Weber and 
Helena Munson, and "Moslem Africa," Esther Fowler. 

A large volume, "Students and Worldwide Expansion 
of Christianity," a report of the Kansas City convention, 
1914, of the Student Volunteer Movement, is in the 
library. It is full of interesting and up-to-date problems 
and may be a great help to the girls in their work.

On the program of Founders' Day before me is a pic- 
ture of that first building, which was completed in 1 85 1 . 
Those stately pillars are surely a symbol of a noble be- 
ginning. It is hard for us who are students today to im- 
agine what those years meant, but the more we come to 
know about them, the more we reverence the founders 
of our College. 

Because we love our College and are eager to know 
more of its noble foundations, Founders' Day is dear to 
us. Sixty-eight long years, but rather short years for col-

lege years are always short, stretch back of us. During 
this time many strong men have given their support to 
bringing about the materialization of a wonderful vision. 
On Thursday, Oct. IS, especial respect was paid to Archi- 
bald Clark Wadsworth, whose signature, as president of 
the board of trustees, is upon more than half of the total 
number of diplomas given in the history of the school. 
His picture was presented by Dr. T. J. Pitner, with words 
of appreciation of his service. An organ voluntary by 
Director Henry V. Stearns, a violin solo by Mrs. Day and 
a vocal duet by Miss Miller and Mrs. Hartmann increased 
the beauty of the service. 

In a short talk Dr. Harker pictured to us in a vivid 
way the College as it is to be, and told what equipment 
and endowment will be necessary to bring about such an 
ambition. The interesting address of the morning was 
made by Hon. Richard Yates, one of the trustees of the 
school. At the close of the service Dr. Harker read to us 
the quaint little diploma written in Latin which had been 
presented to Margaret Morrison on the very first Com- 
mencement day and is now given to us by her daughter, 
Miss Alice Turley, a member of the class of 1877. 



The Senior Class is glad to have Miss Mary Ander- 
son to continue as class officer. The following officers 
were elected at a recent business meeting: President, 
Winifred Burmeister; vice president, Helen Dinsmore; 
secretary and treasurer, Lucile Reinbach. 

With the dignity which caps and gowns always give, 
the Seniors made ther formal appearance in Chapel 
Thursday morning, Oct. 22. The processional was led by 
the Faculty, followed by the Seniors, who were escorted 
by the Sophomores. A special service consisted of the 
College song, the Class hymn, a vocal solo by Miss Miller 
and a short talk by Dr. Harker, closing with a recessional.

The Junior Class has organized with Miss Jennie An- 
derson, class officer of our Freshman year, as our class 
officer again. We welcome her back to our class. 

Election results were: 

Edna Robb, president. 

Wilma Cox, vice-president. 

May Bigger, secretary and treasurer. 

The Juniors stirred up the Freshmen in a lively way 
on Monday evening, Oct. 19, when they entertained them 
at a "wake up" party in the Society Halls. During the 
general "mix up" dates were made for the "talk up" 
which followed. In the "sing up," the Juniors sang some 
of their new class songs and gave a fine demonstration of 
Junior pep. The classes were then very delightfully en- 
tertained in the "speak up" by readings given by Alma 
Harmel and Corinne Hughes. During the time allotted 
for the "eat up" light refreshments were served and a 
charming evening was brought to a close by the "let up." 


The Sophomores are still here this month with their 
"pep," and will be all the rest of the month, too. We are 
very glad to welcome Miss McLaughlin as our class officer. 
We know that we will be livelier than ever, for surely she 
has "lots of pep" stored away with the rest of those ex-

vented our going. We are hoping for a bright Monday 
soon, when we may lead them a merry chase. 


The Freshmen as yet have no organization. They 
enthusiastically welcome Miss Hull as their class officer 
and look forward to a year in which the college will know 
that it has a Freshman class which does things. They 
have already given an evidence of their "pep" in the pic- 
nic which they held at Gravel Springs. Two hayrack 
loads of jolly laughing girls found the beauties of the 
woods in the Autumn on the jaunt. 


The following officers have been elected to fill va- 
cancies: Critic, Helen McGhee; Chorister, May Bigger; 
Summoner, Alta Marie Miller; Chaplain, Alice Birch; 
Page, Gretchen Franken. 

Word has lately been received from our last year's 
Seniors. Geneva Upp has been elected superintendent 
of the city playgrounds of La Kota, North Dakota, and 
Clara Kelly is having splendid success in her teaching at 
Frederickstown, Missouri. 

Johnsie Rowland is teaching music and art in the 
public schools of Olney, 111. 


At our last meeting, Helen DeWitt was elected as our 
vice-president, to fill the vacancy left by Naomi Davis. 
Dorothy Pinkston takes Miss DeWitt's place as usher. 

On the evening of the twelfth the girls of the Society 
met for an informal party in the hall. We especially en- 
joyed exchanging news of our former members. Letters 
from various points on the coast tell us that Eloise Wil-

The day was bright, 

The people few, 
When down the street 
Some vagabonds flew. 

With bright red turbans, sticks over our shoulders with 
suspicious-looking bundles dangling from the end, a shiny 
butcher knife and a string of tin cups, we started out from 
I. W. C. "We don't know where we're going, but we're 
on our way." Down the street, up shady lanes and dusty 
roads, across fields, over fences and up the railroad track 
we tramped until we came to an inviting-looking grove 
on a hill. Here we decided to build our fire. Buns, fried 
eggs and bacon never tasted so good before, especially 
"topped off" with sure enough peaches and cream. The 
vagabond party was carried out in a vagabond program 
the following Tuesday. "Experiences With Vagabonds," 
"How I Became a Wanderer," "The Time, the Place, the 
Tramp," a poem, and the "Dagos" certainly showed ex- 
perience in such lines. 

The next week a program on "October Leaves" was 
given. All sorts of leaves were represented — Autumn 
leaves, a leave of obsence, and even leaving Europe and 
Lake Matanzas. Miss Florence Taylor gave an interest- 
ing talk on her experiences in Europe last summer. 

During the last month we had two of our old mem- 
bers back with us, Hallie Clem and Marjorie Becker. 



For our work this year a course in the American 
Novel, beginning with Poe, has been arranged and prom- 
ises interesting and profitable programs. 

The annual Phi Nu banquet will be held, as usual, 
cit Colonial Inn on November 28. 

On the third Thursday of each month, at 4:15, a 
"cozy" will be held in the hall. Town and out of town 
alumnae will be especially welcome.

Sarah May was the fortunate winner of five prizes at 
the recent Western Montana State Fair. The prizes were 
awarded to some water color studies and china done in the 
studio last year. 

"Have you a vacant hour this afternoon? " 


'Then won't you come up to the studio and pose for 
the sketch class? " 

At this the girl who has had this sudden and unex- 
pected question thrust at her, blushes and looks horrified 
at the idea. Visions of sitting still for a whole hour, and 
real artists gazing at her, whirl through her head, and she 
tries to make all manner of excuses. But with a little 
persuasion she promises to come, and the girls are de- 
lighted with their model. 

The Sketch class is proving very interesting this year. 
Last month Mary Fowler, Julius Stucky, Mildred Barton, 
Beulah Erixson, Helen Mathis, Sarah May, Helena Mun- 
son and Helen Harper posed for the Friday afternoon 
classes. D. S. Stevens. 


There is a program given by the Literary Analysis

connected with the school and the new members are 
rapidly getting adjusted to their duties. 

Among the most important additions to the faculty 
is Mrs. Rosalind M. Day, instructor in violin. Mrs. Day 
has had the advantage of wide experience as a teacher, 
and instruction under the best masters on this side of the 
ocean, as well as some of the greatest teachers of violin 
that Europe boasts, including among them Cesar Thomp- 
son, the Belgian teacher, and Leopold von Auer, of Petro- 
grad, the teacher of Mischa Elman and Zimbalist. An 
orchestra has been formed under Mr. Stearns' direction 
which already numbers over twenty ambitious performers. 
They are hard at wGrk on a progam which they hope to 
give before long. 

Arrangements have been completed for the purchase 
of a Victrola, which will be used extensively in lecture 
work. Negotiations are under way which will lead, it is 
hoped, to the formation of a mandolin and guitar orches- 
tra, and in a short time the Madrigal Club and a large 
chorus, to include any in the school and College who may 
wish to join, will be organized. The College of Music was 
well represented on Founders' Day with organ solos by 
Mr. Stearns, a violin solo by Mrs. Day and a duet by Miss 
Miller and Mrs. Hartmann. In the very near future the 
Artists' course, the Faculty recitals and the Sunday after- 
noon Vesper concerts will begin. 


Did some one say Indiana Club? Well, I guess yes, 
and before the year is over you will sit up and take notice 
ol these fine representatives from Indiana. You will mar- 
vel at their support of every organization in the College 
I the'r interest in each other. 

Our officers arc as follows: Mary Harrison, presi-

With our twenty-eight members to boost, the Hoosier 
Club is bound to do things. 

We had planned a picnic for Saturday, October 10, but 
disagreeable weather prevented our going. All we need 
is a little external sunshine. We have plenty internally. 


The idea of forming a club of the girls who live in 
that part of Illinois commonly known as Egypt has been 
suggested and met with enthusiasm. Announcement of 
a meeting for organization will be made soon, and it is 
hoped that every "Egyptian" will show her loyalty and 
"pep" by giving this movement her hearty support. 


On the night of Sept. 26, the third big college Sing 
came off in a blaze of triumph. The week preceding the 
event was an exciting one for all concerned — for the old 
girls preparing the exquisite lyrics to be rendered — and 
for the new uninitiated ones who accasionally overheard 
such a remark as "green blood" or"It certainly is foxy." 
After dinner the entire student body congregated in two 
society halls thrown together for the evening. Before 
people were fairly in their seats the irrepressible sopho- 
mores — that doughty class of whom you may read further 
in this number of the Greetings — burst upon the scene in 
a peppery song seasoned with ginger. At any rate it 
served to warm folks up and make them want to "lift up 
their voices and burst into song." After the opening 
number "We're Coming," they were all given a chance 
to vocalize on "U-Rah-Rah," and everyone joined in. No 
one could beg off because they didn't know the words, for 
we installed this night our new song book, compiled and 
written by ourselves. It contains just the old songs that 
are prime favorites and several new songs lately written. 
In addition to these good points, we had a number of 

Page Twenty-seven 

®be College (greetings VI 

blank pages put in on which to record such songs as our 
students may be inspired to write for various occasions. 
It really is an indespensible little gray book and they sold 
like fresh crispettes. 

If the French language was composed entirely of 
nasals we should all be most proficient, as our rendering 
of 'The Typical Tune of Jacksonville'' indicated. As we 
look back on that ballad, was it not melodious? Without 
the mel — perhaps. Another feature song was called "A 
Freshman Tragedy" sung gustily by seniors, juniors and 
sophomores. The poor freshies quaked in their shoes the 
rest of the evening. There was also an "Elegy on the 
Faculty" which we are sure must have been appreciated. 
This Sing, the second Saturday night after the opening of 
college, is one of the star events— in fact it is "one of the 
best things we do." How do we do it? To borrow the 
senior chant: 

"We do it all by proxy, by proxy, by proxy — 

We let the sophs and freshmen represent us don't you 


We think that it is foxy, it certainly is foxy, 

The other people do the work — 

But the credit comes to me."

From other college papers we see that other schools 
have their annual boards appointed and at work. Where 
is ours? What are the Juniors going to do about an an- 
nual? During these early weeks and months of school 
much is happening which is not being made use of in the 
should-be ever ready note-books of the annual editors. 
The Juniors better get busy if they are alive to the 

Last year the Annual proved a profitable undertaking, 
not only in a financial way, but to the student body, as a 
book of extreme interest. It was received with such en- 
thusiasm that there should be no hesitancy about the suc- 
cess of one for this year. The Seniors and Sophomores 
and even some of the Freshmen are already clamoring 
for one. A rumor is abroad to the effect that if the 
Juniors don't give us one, the Sophomores are standing 
ready to take the matter into their hands and push it with 
their renowned vigor. Will you allow this, Juniors? 


During the last month five hike clubs were formed, 
one of which is made up of faculty members. Most of 
the girls have been put on one of the clubs. We may well 
be proud of the fact that through these clubs we, as Col- 
lege women, come to be able to walk long distances with-

out fatigue. Not only as physical exercise is walking a 
pleasure, but in this way as in no other we may learn the 
beauties of the out of doors. 


Our exchanges this month have not been very nu- 
merous, but it has been interesting to note how other 
schools have been "buckling down to business/' too. 

The Illinois Wesleyan Argus has some interesting ac- 
counts of experiences in the war zone. 

The Wedding Graphic might be improved by a story 
or two. College activities seem to take up all the space. 

The Quassui Quarterly was the object of a great deal 
of interest. We need to come in touch with the work 
done in other lands in order to realize how high a standard 
they hold. 


Brown University, Providence, R. I., will return this 
fall to the plan of a strictly enforced daily chapel attend- 
ance. Attendance at the daily college religious service has 
for some time been voluntary at this institution, chiefly in 
consideration for the Roman Catholic and Jewish students 
who are found at the university in large numbers. The 
results have been unfavorable, and as the chapel services 
are undenominational, all students will henceforth be re- 
quired to attend. A new department for religious educa- 
tion has been established at Brown and the authorities are 
planning in a very definite way to promote the spiritual 
life of the student body and the faculty.
